On Saturday I crept of into the stock room at work to listen to the last 10 minutes of Norwich vs Swansea, and glancing out of the window saw 5/6 small eerie white faces starring back at me from the outside of the second floor window. It wasn't a Carnary or a Swan, but rather a Pied Wagtail.
It just so happens that one of the 4 large Christmas trees around the edge of John Lewis is pushed up against the stock room window, and lined up on one of the the branches were 5/6 Pied Wagtail, looking in at me. Last year a noticed a few Pied Wagtail roosting in the trees and it looks like this year they have decided to do the same. I would estimate maybe 100 birds roosting in the trees at the moment but it is hard to tell as many birds are arriving after dark. Up until 2-3 weeks ago the birds had been roosting on Surrey Street in the trees by the main Aviva building, but now the leaves have all gone they have moved.
